The Community Business Fund – advance warning

The fund is designed to support existing local community businesses with grants to help them progress towards self-sufficiency. This could be through increasing trading income, securing an asset or significantly reducing revenue costs.

Grants of £50,000 – £300,000 are available to cover:

  • Capital costs including building, vehicles, equipment of significant value, refurbishment costs.
  • Project-specific revenue costs like staff costs, professional fees, volunteer costs

It opens on Wednesday 11th September 2019 and they are holding a webinar about the scheme on the Thursday 12 September from 14:00-15:00. You can register for that here.
